ESTATE SECTION OF ROUND HILL ROAD, GREENWICH CT

Set on the most prestigious country street in the prestigious Town of Greenwich, this compound was originally part of equestrian facilities.  Surrounded by fields and bordered by a lake on one side, this 5+ acre property features playing lawns, formal gardens, multiple entertaining terraces, a lake and footbridge leading to it’s own island.  Private and peaceful, affording a true country lifestyle.

A fresh translation of the classical Georgian Colonial design, this home is exacting in every detail.  The double wide front to back 100’ long entry with double height ceiling runs front to back, opening up on a view of the lake and island.  Every room is detailed in its design and finishes, using materials from around the world.  The results is a residence that is unparalleled in Greenwich, modern in its sensibility, yet grounded in the principles of classical architecture.

The stately façade, with its soaring columns and classical details, gives way to gallery-like interior spaces that radiate with a modern sensibility and informal luxury.  Sunlight floods the first-floor entertaining areas, including the lofty Adirondack Great Room with a reclaimed 400-year-old wood-beam cathedral ceiling and dramatic fireplace, the professionally equipped kitchen that shimmers in stainless and white, and bi-level family room and breakfast room—both with floor-to-ceiling windows that offer panoramic pastoral and lake views.

Situated on 5.7 rolling acres, the property boasts its own lake and island with a private footbridge.  The bucolic beauty is enjoyed from multiple entertaining spaces, one of which is a sparkling zero edge pool plus a columned portico that shelters an outdoor dining area, fireplace, and changing room.  The grounds also feature impeccable gardens and lawns, a guesthouse finished in the same meticulous detail as the main residence, and garaging for 7 cars.

Located less than 40 miles from New York City, and just across the State line from New York, Greenwich, Connecticut is one of the nation’s most dynamic communities and luxury real estate markets.

With approximately 62,000 residents, Greenwich represents the 10th largest municipality in Connecticut, and largest of Connecticut’s famed “Gold Coast” towns.

Founded in 1640, Greenwich’s pre-colonial past is the stuff of fascinating lure of settlers, farmland. By the mid-1800s, Greenwich saw a boon in its transportation economy as the rail system brought commerce, industry and new residents to town.

The thriving town captivated New York City dwellers’ attention. They came to Greenwich for summers at the seashore, or for full-time residency – the City’s affluent in search of a classic Americana lifestyle, different than the hustle-and-bustle of Manhattan. The names of prominent, influential families are evident around Greenwich today – Gimbel, Converse, Havemeyer, and Rockefeller, to name but a few.

Today, Greenwich’s community is made up of generations of families who put down roots here long ago, with a healthy arrival of newcomers – whether from New York, across the country, or other continents. The international influence – part of Greenwich’s tradition – enriches its thriving commerce, fine arts, literary, and culinary scenes.

Celebrities and some of the most accomplished professionals in medicine, finance, art, media, publishing, sports, philanthropy and other fields have chosen Greenwich as their home.

Luxury estate buyers will find fellow Greenwich residents to be welcoming, culturally diverse and discreet. Private associations – many with sought-after amenities and Clubs – provide the assurance of security and the perk of community. Property taxes in Greenwich are measurably lower than other exclusive Connecticut and New York towns.

The real estate options are as unique as each investor – from the dramatic formality of Greenwich’s famed Great Estates, Georgian colonials, Tudors and European cheateaus, to the sleek simplicity of Mid-Century Modern architecture and the casual-but-decadent resort living afforded by magnificent waterfront residences, iconic “New England coastal.” Things they have in common are exquisite design, expert craftsmanship, high-tech engineering, coveted amenities, and idyllic settings.

Greenwich is made up of distinctive neighborhoods, hamlets and enclaves. For luxury-market homes and estates, investors might consider the vast, grand mansions or equestrian estates of backcountry, a Conyer’s Farm estate, or perhaps a posh setting near the bustling downtown district and the world-renowned Greenwich Avenue. “The Ave” is known for its fine restaurants and shopping, with luxury retailers and brands like Saks Fifth Avenue, Baccarat, Brooks Brothers, Tiffany & Co., Hermès, and more.

For magnificent coastal properties, associations like Field Point Circle, beautiful Belle Haven, Indian Harbor, Mead Point, Milbrook or Willowmere provide “a front-row seat” to Greenwich Cove and Long Island Sound. Belle Haven, Indian Harbor and Milbrook each have the added amenity of private clubs.

Moving to Greenwich

With Greenwich’s renowned public school system and private schools, the town has special appeal for homebuyers who envision raising their families here. Both the public and private school paths have proven track records in preparing students for their university and career pursuits.

Commuters to New York City will appreciate the option of driving or leveraging public transportation. Manhattan is less than an hour away by train, and there are several train stations in and around Greenwich.

Greenwich charms residents and visitors with a bounty of green space, conservation land managed by Greenwich Land Trust and the Audubon Society. The public amenities are plentiful, too, like the town’s many parks, beaches and recreational venues.

Avid equestrians will appreciate Greenwich’s “horse country” and its proximity to neighboring New York State equestrian destinations. The Greenwich Riding and Trails Association has done a remarkable job in preserving and maintaining Greenwich’s historic equestrian trails.

There’s never a shortage of things to do in Greenwich.

The town and local institutions, like the Bruce Museum, Greenwich Arts Council, the Public Library, Greenwich Chamber of Commerce and others host special events and festivals throughout the calendar year, encouraging residents to gather, socialize and commune beyond their neighborhoods.

Exclusive members-only golf and yacht clubs are popular among Greenwich’s society and passionate sports enthusiasts.

And another wonderful result of Greenwich’s diverse population is the vast number of religious, philanthropic and community organizations founded here. Newcomers will quickly discover that Greenwich’s community is engaged, informed, and generous.
